Ep. 11: The State Ruins Healthcare

Over the past three to four years, my family and I have come to loathe healthcare.  No matter what doctor we see, no matter what state we live in, no matter how carefully we discuss the cost, inevitably months later we’re surprised with mysterious bills for services we can’t even remember.  Can you think of … read more

Ep. 10: Voluntaryism Revisited

If you’re having trouble conveying the ideas of libertarianism, anarchy, or anarcho-capitalism to your friends, family, neighbors, or coworkers, don’t give up.  Anarchy has a marketing problem and I believe the solution is a small shift in messaging toward Voluntaryism.  In this episode I continue the discussion of Voluntaryism and defend against a common objection. … read more

Ep. 9: Voluntaryism is the New Anarchy

When you were growing up, at some point in your life I can almost guarantee your parents said “we don’t hit people,” “don’t take that from him,” and “leave him alone.”  Neither you nor your parents knew it, but for the very first time you were being exposed to the idea of voluntaryism, the notion that … read more

Ep. 8: Question, Examine, Discuss EVERYTHING

Lately I’ve been astonished at how frequently the media, the State, and regular run-of-the-mill uninterested citizens have all been in lockstep with the notion that ideas and opinions that are in contrast to your own should be silenced, ignored, or vilified.  When we can’t have a civil discourse about current events without an accusation of … read more

Ep. 7: Silly Electric Vehicles and The EU is Clearly Compensating for Brexit

In this episode, the Libertarian Life segment returns.  In it, I showcase the idiocy of reserved parking spaces for so-called fuel-efficient/low-emissions vehicles.  I bring it all back to Hazlitt’s one lesson and the beautiful consistency that is libertarian political philosophy.  That’s right, I found a way to connect property rights and non-aggression to reserved parking … read more

Ep. 5: Libertarian Townhall Analysis

This week the Libertarian Presidential ticket was featured on a nationally televised CNN Town Hall forum.  If you didn’t have time to watch, fear not – in this episode I highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly.  And trust me, there was plenty of all three categories to go around.  Overall I think the … read more

Ep. 4: Free Market Smashes the Government-Protected Taxi Industry

During my trip to California last week, I had a few chance conversations with professional drivers regarding ride sharing services.  I spoke with a ride share driver and a taxi driver and it turned out they both left a little to be desired in the area of the basic principles of economics.  And while I didn’t … read more

Ep. 3: Freekachu v Bureaupuff

Coming to you from the People’s Republic of California, in this episode the Libertarian Life segment focuses on the latest craze in mobile gaming, Pokemon Go.  I discuss some libertarian themes related to this fad that are hiding in plain sight, just waiting to be discovered.  How could Pokemon Go possibly be related to freedom? … read more
